Why do we see so many people with severe mental illnesses on the street, often off treatment and nearly always alone? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston, whose own father, Richard Ruston, has paranoid schizophrenia and at times lived on the street, takes viewers along on a deeply personal journey to reconnect with her estranged father. Can she make sense of the devastation that his illness has caused? Should she resume her childhood role of acting as her dad’s doctor, or is caring for him in that way hindering her from truly caring for him?
Watch a clip from Delaney Ruston's documentary Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia.
